Stobart Group has re-submitted plans for a new RDC in Peterborough.
It hopes to build an £18 million distribution facility on the Great Haddon development – creating more than 350 jobs.
The proposal put forward by developer Roxhill includes a new £2 million road junction servicing Great Haddon off the A1139 Fletton Parkway, near to the A1, and building a new main road through the urban extension. This had been a sticking point with local residents in the original plans put forward in July 2010.
The plans include a 175,000 sq ft distribution centre with 12 HGV loading bays, a separate “cross dock” facility and office space covering a further 75,000 sq ft. Stobart is looking to open the new facility in April 2012.
